Ready your sparkly blue dress and warm up your vocal chords - Disney is giving Frozen 2 an earlier release date!
Last year, the official Disney Animation account had shared a tweet revealing the release date as November 27, 2019, a whole two-and-a-half ahead of time.
Kristen Bell, who provided the voice for Anna in the original Frozen film, also sent an enthusiastic tweet to her fans to celebrate the announcement.
‘Quick weather forecast from your favourite disney princess’ sister: Theatres are gonna get Frozen on November 27, 2019! Woo Hoo!!!!’ the actress wrote.
However, the good people at Disney have been kind to everyone who’s eagerly anticipating the return of Anna and Elsa, and turns out it’s coming back a week earlier than originally planned.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the release date for the extremely popular film is now November 22, 2019 – so still a while to go guys…
Kristen previously explained that the reason for the relatively long wait was that the film makers were working hard to ensure that Frozen 2 lives up to the original.
‘What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out,’ she said to Collider.
‘That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing a second one. Generally when you have a first successful movie you want to make a second one. It took them a while because they wanted to figure out what story they needed to tell and what would be important and engaging and I think they found it.’
Speaking about the sequel, producer Peter Del Vecho told Entertainment Weekly back in 2017: ‘Now that we’ve been involved in it for awhile, what’s exciting is it feels like it builds on the first movie. You understand things better in the first movie after you’ve seen the sequel.’
The news of the Frozen 2 first broke on 13th March 2015, and since then we’ve been spending our days imagining all of the fun Elsa, Anna, Olaf et al will have in their next big adventure.
Possibly the only person more excited than us at the time was Kristen herself, who posted this brilliant celebratory snap on her Twitter profile and wrote: ‘Dreams really do come 2!!! #FROZEN2 #itsofficial’.
Co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, who worked on the first Frozen film, have been confirmed for Frozen 2, so we’re sure it’ll have the same great mix of puns, songs and sisterhood.
Hold tight for 2019 everyone – little over a year to go!
